Vincent Hogan: Daly's Dublin hell-bent on laying ghosts to rest

So the ghost of Limerick pitches up in Parnell Park tomorrow, booked in for a show that's box-office for all the wrong reasons.
Outside of Donnycarney, the National Hurling League all but excuses itself to take a little siesta this weekend. There are three dead rubbers to be endured in Division 1. And there's Dublin-Limerick.
Not too many laughter lines, then, around the face of a competition to be decided in an evening final between Cork and Galway on May 2. The league has, essentially, been wound up prematurely. In fact, if it wasn't for the 'head-to-head' factor introduced to separate teams tied on equal points, even this bleak-house thrill would be denied us.
